When you hear about travel and leisure vacations what thought or imagination gets into your head? – While rafting and kayaking in Nepal, adventurers can float along picturesque mountain rivers enjoying tranquil views, far from the well-traveled paths. Both options have the merits and demerits. I travel with family as well as with friends. I like both the experiences. I think we should enjoy both occasions. Some times we get opportunities – may be official – to go with friends only travel insurance and in such occasions we have to enjoy the trip with friends. Always we can plan of our own to travel with family and enjoy the trip with them. This is the story of legendary woman of the wilderness, Dorothy Molter, also known as the Nightengale of the Wilderness (after Florence Nightingale) for her nursing skills and the help, both medical and otherwise, she gave to those who visited her Boundary Waters “resort,” Isle of Pines, on Knife Lake, where she lived since the 1920s.

Another good tip for improving your safety when you travel, especially to a country that uses a currency you haven’t used before, is to do some research on the currency’s value. Knowing the basic exchange rate between your home currency and your destination currency will protect you from getting ripped off or scammed into paying more for something because you don’t know how the price stacks up against your own currency. Appearing confident and knowledgeable when you handle your cash will send a signal to would-be scammers that you aren’t just another clueless tourist. The key to enjoying all this adventure while staying within your budget is to shun the standard tourist sights, and to take your time when traveling around. By doing this, not only will you save money, but you will make contact with real people, and make some wonderful memories. While in Cancun you may meet only other tourists, in the wilds of Peru you will meet all kinds of people, from peasant coffee farmers to experienced mountain guides and white water raft guides.
